It’s with a heavy heart we must report the sudden passing of the most dedicated doggy men in the country, Vincent Leavy.

Responsible for the ‘Alamo’ prefix from his Longwood base, Vincent was a talented handler who provided so many winners through the years.

A regular at Mullingar, he had most of his success at the Midlands venue but he was far more than just an owner/ trainer. He was also actively involved in the Mullingar GOBA and Newbridge Track Supporters Club and was always quick to put up his hand when a volunteer was needed for anything.

Vincent was PRO of the Mullingar GOBA and was the driving force behind the launch of the pilot Track Injury Scheme at Mullingar in June of this year.

A gentleman, he was extremely generous with his time and was always first in line to help out with charity work and fundraising events. The best of company, he will be sadly missed by his many friends at the track.

We would like to take this opportunity to send on our sincerest condolences to his family and many friends.

May He Rest In Peace.
